Behavioral Health Q&A

What is behavioral health?

Behavioral health explores the connection between your behaviors, like your diet, patterns of thinking, alcohol consumption, physical activity routines, and your overall well-being.

Your customized behavioral health care may include: 

  • Chronic disease management
  • Marriage and family counseling
  • Substance use interventions, treatment, and recovery
  • Mental health support and psychiatric care

Mental health concerns, like anxiety and depression, fall under behavioral health care. 

The emphasis of behavioral health is on helping you find positive ways to approach everyday life. 

How can behavioral health help me?

Behavioral health can be powerful in helping you or your loved ones overcome problems that interfere with your relationships, ability to work, and overall quality of life.

For example, behavioral health services help you overcome substance use disorder, so you can restore your relationships with family and friends and save your physical health. 

Behavior health is helpful if you struggle with disordered eating, social isolation, or alcoholism. It can also help you avoid the physical effects of depression, such as stroke, heart disease, and diabetes. 

Who should seek behavioral health services?

Seek out behavioral health services if you’re struggling with:

  • Severe mood swings
  • Relationship issues
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Substance use

Behavioral therapy can help you deal with the physical and social problems these issues cause, including homelessness, unemployment, and family division. 

You may be able to decrease depressive or anxious episodes and feel more in control of your life. 

What is the difference between behavioral health care and mental health care?

Behavioral health helps you understand your habits affect your overall physical and mental well-being. The ultimate goal of behavioral health is to help you live a fuller, more meaningful life. If you’re struggling with finding stable housing or holding down a job, behavioral health interventions may be able to assist.

Mental health care, in contrast, addresses a specific, diagnosed illness, like bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. Behavioral health can help you, whether you have a mental health disorder or not.
